Issam Kourbaj: Urgent Archive

2 March – 26 May 2024

Since 2011 Issam Kourbaj’s artwork has responded to the ongoing conflict in Syria, and reflects on the suffering of his fellow Syrians and the destruction of his cultural heritage. This exhibition presents key works from this period alongside a new series which explores themes of loss, memory and renewal.

A G E N D A Project 1: Yevheniia Laptii

12 March – 11 June 2024

We are pleased to announce A G E N D A, a new series of artist projects that respond to global events and address pressing issues of our time. The series aims to show how a single work of art can offer insight and understanding beyond the 24-hour news cycle.

The first project displays the photograph ‘Deti’ (2023) by Ukrainian artist Yevheniia Laptii (b. 1992, Kharkiv) on the second floor of Kettle’s Yard, outside the Research Space.
